NORTH SHORE, OAHU, HI (2006)--Turtle Bay Resort on the dramatic North Shore of Oahu announces its North Shore Romance Package that gives honeymooners and lovers a romantic getaway in one of the most spectacular settings in Hawaii. Turtle Bay Resort offers beautiful rooms - each one with a spectacular ocean view, dining overlooking the sunset on Turtle Bay and 880 acres of private resort lands with hidden coves, walking trails and pristine beaches. Valid from Jan. 1 to Dec. 20, the resort's North Shore Romance Package offers the following: · Oceanfront premium room (double occupancy). · Daily in-room breakfast for two.
· Sparkling champagne or cider and chocolate-dipped strawberries the day of arrival. · The package is $353 per night. (No minimum night stay.) Price does not include airfare, resort fee, room tax, incidentals or gratuities. Turtle Bay reservation agents can customize this package to meet a couple's special requirements and desires.
Room upgrades to deluxe and suite categories are available. Prices are subject to change without notice. Romance in The Beach Cottages at Turtle Bay Resort Included in the extensive upgrades was the recent renovation of The Beach Cottages at Turtle Bay Resort, 42 beachfront cottages, elegantly appointed private oases with lanais facing the ocean. The Cottages comprise 42 suites - all with prime oceanfront views - that reflect the creative hand of renowned Los Angeles designer Michael Smith. Grouped in clusters of six, each cottage underwent $150,000 in renovation work to bring them to the highest standard of a luxury experience. The Cottages are handsomely dressed in imperial yellow with copper flashing and rain caches on the outside.
Upon entry, the polished Brazilian walnut floors lead to a large, multi-level beach retreat with 15-foot ceilings and king poster beds. A mini bar, teak chairs and lanai with large glass doors overlook the Pacific sands. For rinsing and cleansing from a day in the ocean, the cottages are equipped with large marble bathrooms with Kallista deep-soak tubs, freestanding glass showers, and private enclosed toilets.
Some cottages are also available as adjoining rooms with both king and double beds for families. Dining Romance can be shared during intimate candlelight dining in 21 Degrees North, where the chef prepares contemporary island cuisine. Outdoor dining may be easily arranged, overlooking the resort pools, magnificent Turtle Bay itself and the setting sun. For the privacy of in-room dining, couples may enjoy the private balcony overlooking one of Turtle Bay's two beaches.
Activities for Couples Activities for couples abound--horseback riding at the resort's private stables; lounging at the swimming pools or on the quiet, safe beach; snorkeling; 12 miles of trail walking; spa treatments, including massages for couples; tennis; world-class golf; pedal bike rentals; North Shore and waterfall aerial tours by Paradise Helicopters; and five miles of beachfront where there is scarcely a footprint in the sand. And, of course, there is the legendary surfing of Oahu's North Shore. Couples may enjoy the sport as observers from afar or jump right in and take a lesson for two from the famous Hans Hedemann Surf School, located on the resort. Located on the North Shore of Oahu, the 880-acre Turtle Bay Resort is managed by Benchmark Hospitality International.
